Suffering is good for the soul

So after getting rid of the dreaded strep, due to too much fever, my mouth, lips, and tongue have developed sores all over.  In addition, my sinus has been shot to you-know-where and hurts to keep my eyes open.  To make the suffering complete, my allergies seem to have kicked in…

In all honesty, it’s a bit much for me to bare… but I’m trying… trying to remember that this is God-given opportunity to see God working, that the suffering produces ultimately, hope in Christ.  I’m trying to remain thankful in my physical suffering, remembering that there are millions of others who are in worse shoes than I am.

Still, it’s tough and I tell myself to take this fight with the suffering one day at a time…  to all who are fighting, fight the good fight.
